State Cross Country was a huge success for the Wiggins team, with seniors Connor Kaufman and Maggie Allen competing for state. Kaufman took 9th and Allen 14th. Both seniors will be ending their season by running at Nike’s Cross Country Regional Race in Casa Grande, Arizona on November 19.
With this being Allen’s last cross country race of her high school career she is hoping to break, since it is at a lower altitude, and just have fun. “ I am expecting to see really hard competition during this race,” said Allen.
This will be Kaufman’s second time running this race. From the first time running this race Kaufman thought that it was a good experience, you get to meet a lot of new people, and get to run in Arizona. “ I am hoping to break 16 minutes for this race,” said Kaufman.
Junior Courtney Jenson also competed at State Cross Country and finished 8th in the field.
After the Nike Cross Country Regional Race you will be seeing these three running in track in the spring.
